Short idea and description of the project …
Project “LET IT BE”, EVS coordinated by GULBENE
Project description. Project “Let it be”, coordinated by Gulbene ( ERASMUS PLUS Programme) gives the opportunity to one youngster from European Union to have an important intercultural and professional growth by doing a long term Voluntary work, 9 months long, for two Local organisations- Youth Center “ Pulss” located in Lejasciems village ( 4 days per week ) and Primary and Secondary School of Gulbene, located in Gulbene municipality ( 1 day per week ).
The project aims are to provide a supportive environment for volunteers to work and gain intercultural experience, personality development, offering stable working structure in the organization, as well as the possibility to show the initiative; to expand public knowledge about the European and local voluntary work promoting intercultural dialogue and expanding horizons; 3 major themes mainly characterize our project: Culture and Creativity, Youth partecipation and Inclusion, rural development and urbanization.
Travelling. Plane and bus tickets will be provided by the volunteer or by the sending Organisation. It is possible to bring the volunteer from Riga to Gulbene once he or she will be arrived in the Capital. We will help the volunteer out to organise trips to the work place ( Lejasciems village ) and it will be possible to use public transports.
Accomodation. The volunteer will live in Gulbene, in a flat provided by us. The flat is fully equipped with all the necessary tools for living ( electrical devices, beds, etc. ), and the volunteer only needs to bring proper clothes and a functional laptop.
The flat is very close to the centre and for this reason all the public places are reachable in 10-15 minutes by foot. We will take care of the volunteer living situation. The
volunteer will have the possibility to take part in sports, cultural and others kinds of events and make socialization with other volunteers in Gulbene.
Financial questions. The volunteer will get 80 euros per month as pocket money, and 120 euros for food. We will help the volunteer out to open a Latvian bank account.
Communication. We will provide to the volunteer a local Sim card with a local phone number. We will not provide to the volunteer a cellphone.
Volunteer we are looking for. We are looking for an open-minded, dynamic and active person who could help in differents activities. We are looking for someone who is able to work with children and youngsters, proposing initiatives, workshops, outdoor activities. Mainly, the volunteer will organise and manage activities in the Youth Center “Pulss”, and once per week at the Primary and Secondary school of Gulbene. For each activity the volunteer will be organising to, we will give him or her all the support which is needed. We are looking for someone who has good English communication skills.
